The Marty Lounge>Off Season Lets Talk Guns, Part 2
HonestChieffan 11:58 AM 01-23-2011
Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

Does anyone have any experience with one of these? Seems like a cool nonlethal option.

Hmm. I had not heard about this. Seems like a very effective defensive weapon for most situations. And you don't have to worry about getting arrested for murder or sued by a pissed off family member. Seems like this is something cops should be all over. Much more effective than a taser.

However, I'd still want a real gun as backup. This would be great against a single assailant. Against a rioting mob, not so much.

Ha! thats the Sensible Prepper, I watch 3-4 of his youtube videos a week... love that guy

As for the weapon, it looks pretty cool and effective... but I just don't think theres any good replacement for the lethality of a bullet, particularly when the bad guy has bullets

Another problem is that if the assailant is close to you, if you hit him with one of those pepper rounds you'll disable yourself as well. Bad news if he's got a friend with him.

Yep, its a very situation specific weapon

Its just too limited for my tastes

Yep. But like I said before, I think this would be a perfect weapon for law enforcement. If the cop in Chicago had popped that kid in the chest with one of these instead of an actual bullet, the entire incident would be a nonstory. Hell, he could have shot the kid in the back and disabled him before he even turned around.

You want a cop that's chasing a person with a gun to draw this instead of his service weapon? I can't go there.

I see this more as a bouncer's option for controlling a couple drunks in the parking lot. Or perhaps security at a concert or some kind of crowd control position.

I assume felons could use this as a home defense weapon, or does something about it disqualify them from owning it? I'm guessing their PO probably wouldn't be too thrilled about it and would need to be completely filled in on why they have it.

In a situation where the perp is running away instead of actively shooting, I think it's a good option. A cop can't shoot the guy in the back with a regular gun. But with the other one, he can. Obviously it would be at the discretion of the cop.

And I don't see this being a good thing for a bouncer. Shooting off one of those pepper rounds in a crowd? That would be a mess.

Yeah, it's a decent idea but has some important limitations. Weather and wind could wreak havoc with the effectiveness of the gas. The solid marble thingy may hurt in light clothing but in winter clothes may not be as painful. Drugged up out their minds tend to just get angrier and ignore pain. For the officer's safety lethal force can be the difference between going home or transported to the morgue.

All good points. I would never recommend substituting this for a real gun. But I think it's a far better nonlethal alternative to a taser.
